Cast members featured on Boys Before Flowers OST
No point in deliberately hiring idol stars and then not making use of their pop-music backgrounds, right?
Two of F4 members in the new drama Boys Before Flowers got their starts in kpop, and will be featured on the drama’s soundtrack. Kim Hyun-joong (“Yoon Ji-hoo”) is a singer for the boy band SS501, while Kim Joon has a slightly lower profile as a member of the group T-Max, who sings the title song “Paradise.”
(Kim Joon is a rapper with T-Max, which perhaps explains his character Song Woo-bin’s gangsta-wannabe vocabulary — which, btw, is starting to grow on me; it’s still horrible, but amusingly bad. This happens to be his acting debut, and despite his inexperience, I actually think he’s doing a decent job.)
Kim Hyun-joong and SS501 contribute a track called “Because I’m Dumb.” The OST also features kpop groups Shinee, Someday, Seo Jin-young, Tree Bicycle, and Ashily (familiar names from director Jeon’s previous dramas My Girl and Witch Amusement). Too bad the general sentiment has been that the music of the drama — how to put this lightly? — sucks.
